Well, not entirely satisfactory, Skipping Chapel was gassy and keen pulling hard over the first few fences, the jockey dropped him back to try to get him to settle and then just as the race began to get serious he was badly hampered by some carnage 4 out, Paddy then hunted him home and he finished a tailed off last of the 8 finishers. Not sure what to conclude really, he jumped well enough but wasn't travelling as well as I would have liked him to be when he met the trouble.
I think we'll say that he'll come on mentally for the run and also improve fitness wise so we will try to find something for him soon, he was very bright after the race.
Miss Colima lines up at Carlisle on Sunday at 3.35, Lucy rides, 12 run, the ground will be heavy (inspection 8am Sunday), it won't be ideal but its an ordinary little contest and we just need her to show us something & improve on her last run.
